Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
950. To Shelley
 
By John Banister Tabb
 
 
        AT Shelley’s birth,
The Lark, dawn-spirit, with an anthem loud
        Rose from the dusky earth
        To tell it to the Cloud,
That, like a flower night-folded in the gloom,        5
        Burst into morning bloom.
 
        At Shelley’s death,
The Sea, that deemed him an immortal, saw
        A god’s extinguished breath,
        And landward, as in awe,        10
Upbore him to the altar whence he came,
        And the rekindling flame.
